>> here is the president. >> an increasingly urgent effort to avoid default and reduce our deficit. right now the house of representatives is still trying to pass a bill that the majority of republicans and democrats in the senate have already said it will not vote for. it is a plan that would force us to relive this crisis in just a few short months holding our economy captives to washington politics once again. in other words it does not solve the problem. it has no chance of becoming law. what is clear now is said any solution to avoid defaults must be bipartisan. it must have the support of both parties that were sent here to represent the american people, not just one faction. it will have to have the support of both the house and the senate. there are multiple ways to resolve this problem. santer read, a democrat has introduced a plan in the
7:38 am
senate that contains cuts agreed upon by both parties, senator mcconnell offered a solution that could get us through this. and there are plenty of modifications that we can make high their plan to get them passed through both the house and senate plan would allow me to sign them into law. i want a plan by consigned by tuesday, that would get support from both houses. this is not a situation where the parties are miles apart, we are in rough agreement about how much spending can be cut responsibly as a first step to reducing our deficit. so what the next step is a debate in the coming months on tax reform and in time to reform. i am ready and willing to have that debate. if we need to put in
7:39 am
place some kind of reform mechanism, and i am willing to do that if it is done a positive way. we need a compromise by tuesday's of the country will have the ability to pay its bills on tuesday, those that include monthly social security checks, veterans' benefits and government contracts that we have signed with thousands of businesses. keep in mind, if we do not do that, if we do not come to an agreement we could lose our aaa credit rating. " not because we did not have the capacity to pay bills, we do, but because we did not have a triple a political system to match. her " a lower credit rating would result potentially in a tax increase on everyone in the form of higher interest rates on mortgages, car loans
7:40 am
and credit cards. hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, there are a lot of things we cannot predict. this is not one of those crisis. the power to solve this is in our hands. on a day when we have been reminded how fragile the economy already is, this is one burn that can lift ourselves. it can and with a simple vote a bill that democrats and republicans have been taking for decades. a vote that the leaders in congress have taken for decades. it is not a vote that allows congress to spend more money. raising the debt ceiling simply gives our country the ability to pay the bills or that congress has already racked up. i want to emphasize that. price the debt ceiling does not determine how
7:41 am
much more we can spend, it simply authorizes us to pay the bills that we already have. it gives the united states the ability to keep its word i ask the american people to make their voice heard in this debate. the response was overwhelming. please, to all of the american people, keep it up. if you want to see a bipartisan compromise, a bill that can pass in both houses of congress and that i can sign, which your members of congress know. make a phone call, send an e-mail, tweet, keep the pressure on washington and we can get past this. for my part, our administration the time for putting party first is over. it's time for compromise on behalf of the american people is now. horace i am confident we
7:42 am
can solve this problem for all the intrigue and trauma that is taking place on capitol hill, i am confident (...) >> the president was just wrapping up his speech. let's go back. >> i am willing to step up and show the leadership that the american people expect. thank you. >> president obama is wrapping up his speech as we wait to see what happens in congress more. it appears the plan from john baena may be dead . >> we will be right back bac
